Designers Use “Guerilla Greening” to Transform Cities Into Vibrant Urban Forests

Have you ever looked at the architecture around you and wondered what it will look like in the future? WATG is imagining what urban centers would glance like if they underwent intense ecological transformation via a venture the organization calls “guerilla greening.” Green Guerillas, in particular, educate and equip people to transform grey, neglected corners of their neighborhoods into vibrant pocket gardens that benefit both people and planet.

Through a series of GIFs, streets in London, New York City, and Honolulu, for instance, are transformed into lush, garden-like enclaves teeming with trees. It presents a new landscaping, and thick vegetation wrapping around the existing architecture. In fact, WATG poured years of research into the short animations, which visualize practical and viable adjustments. Such matter would improve air quality, promote bicycle and pedestrian traffic as well as make the traditionally concrete-and-brick locales more ecologically diverse.

Even though nature clearly performs a additional significant part in these cities than we are customarily employed to, that does not mean it is all forest. Individuals can be observed strolling by means of the dense vegetation, cycling down new paths, and generally taking pleasure in the greener city. Thus, WATG can help us to imagine what our towns could look like if we welcomed nature into our developed setting and challenged our traditional ideas about sustainability in architecture.
